Which guide, could you provide a link?

We don't support the gpio sysfs means of accessing GPIO, it's been
deprecated since around the 4.8 kernel.

Interesting... I'm assuming that Nvidia based theirs on Debian which may still be using this method?

The replacement mechanism is the GPIO character interface where the
GPIO is available via /dev/gpiochip* or through the libgpiod userspace
utils and python3 bindings in the python3-libgpiod package. I've not
looked but I would guess there's support for this interface on NodeRED
as it's been around for some time.

Yes, I do see a /dev/gpiochip{0,1}

I'll take a look. Thanks!
